Hospital medication errors are a real threat in the United States. It is estimated that 7,000 people are injured each year because of medication errors.
While hospitals have systems in place to prevent mistakes, errors are still very common. A report released by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services found that more than 80 percent of hospital errors go unreported by hospital employees.
